unclear on the agenda and on ours it doesn't mention any possible action item, but on the document for the public utilities commission it does and i think we want to make sure we're either today or the next puc meeting but i hope that's the plan, the framework of the plan can be adopted. >> i would like to make a comment. >> commissioner torres. >> first of all i never believed the hit pieces against you commissioner olague. >> thank you. >> and the man that defeated carter thought redwood trees caused pollutions and number three i don't think the staff is naive and to suggest that is inappropriate. they have been working very hard in this effort -- >> i -- >> i'm not talking about you. i am talking general in response. i believe the process is organic and i believe they do take into consideration every input as possible and this process and i know the chair and the other members of the commission know is not over yet. it is still evolving and that is an important element to put out there. this process is still evolving and organ and i can need continued input to whatever surve
for your hard work. the next item on the agenda is discussion and possible action regarding amendments to cfro. first let me check with the commissioners, are we okay going forward? does anybody need a short break? >> fine. >> fine. >> mr. st. croix would you like to introduce this agenda item? >> so during the summer days of the mayoral campaign, the most recent mayoral campaign, we had issues that presented themselves to us that were new to san francisco in that there were campaign -- let me take that word back. there were committees organized to draft ed lee to run for mayor. he was at the time considered to be a caretaker who was to fill the vacancy until the next election could be held. there were at least three sump committees, i think maybe four and some of them raised good sums of money. and my concern was that they were functioning as campaigns without actually being campaigns. the commission decided that they weren't campaigns under current law. but i think the commission agreed that the raising and spending of that size of money was not designed by the voters to be so
torres. just a clarification on the action item before us if there is one or for the later meet something. >> the sfpuc commission agenda provides for them to discuss and take action, so our understanding is that the commission secretary would call the roll for the sfpuc so that they could vote on this agenda item for lafco it was just a discussion item. >> thank you. commissioner vietor. >> yes and i appreciate all the public comments that have been made and the comments too from this body and all of the work that the puc has done. i have been on the public utilities commission for four years plus and i know this cleanpower sf issue -- i think it's been eight years, nine years in the coming, and when i came on there was really this sort of sense that the puc wasn't stepping up, that the city didn't care that we weren't moving quickly enough and he we are at this opportunity to really move things forward. i think it's really remarkable and i think we all now recognize with hurricane sandy, with the inclement weather and the winter we're having now that climate change and renewable powe

"newsroom" starts now. >>> good morning. i'm carol costello. thank you so much for being with me. christians around the world are getting ready to celebrate christmas, which marks the birth of their lord and savior jesus christ. here's a live look at bethlehem, where people are beginning to gather for the midnight mass at the church of the holy nativity. bethlehem is described in the bible as the birth place of jesus. about 2 million people make the pilgrimage to bethlehem each and every year. pope benedict expected to deliver his christmas mass in just a few hours at st. peter's basilica in rome. he has a book out debunking several myths about now the nativity unfolded. for one thing, he says the accepted date of jesus' birth is several yea
the presentation and he describes the approval and the recommendation and port action from increases and contracts and overall budget amount so, as your report outlines when you last saw the cruise budget it was a $84.84 million and it's now a one pen npt p.in this action and so it had a $5 million change and phase two has an $11.5 million change for 16.5 total and, i don't have a slide to make it easier to walk through what i'm talking about and the phase one changes and the increase of 5 million is result of three items change orders and condense of the project schedule for the america's cup and two phase one from phase two for the elevator and is escalator and is the $11 million increase is the result of three factor and is the first is that the budget you last saw was at an earlier design stage and so as we went in drawings to constructs ready drawings the pricing got more fine grained and actually increase and had we are also seeing the increase in the terminal fee for exceeding the 250 million-dollar contract limit and much much more design detail and solutions on the north east tip and nort
planning committee on november 19th and we will go back for action this month and we are looking to the bring the city policy to the board of interferes in early 2013 and so as brad said i'll go over the policy and then brad will go over three major projects that we are proposing the use of i f d for. and so the port commission is very well aware in 1969, we got our 54 piers nine react activated and we have an extraordinarily large deferred maintenance problem in the magnitude of $2.2 million and what the port earned as an enterprise is not enough to deal with the assets and the defined problems and so one of our major strategies that the port has initiated in the last decade is to find other source and is so we can be successful leveraging the important assets for the future and so this chart really shows all of the growth of all of these other source that are helping ut to solve our problems and the joe bonds that we just spoke of have been important for park improvementings and i s d which, is in the bright blue is a major proposal to help us build critical flay structure for
. it just gets a little circular, but i do agree that support should include actions or statements whether public or non-public. that are trying to urge or encourage a particular outcome. i think that is the point of "support." and i'm also trying to think through if you have got a committee under state law that you have a primarily formed committee. i know. right. that this is creating a new animal only under scintilla, but is requiring that animal to file reports. all right, i will just keep thinking about it. if we haven't figured out the definitions we should try to get that right. it's dangerous to have a definition here that is complicated and interconnected and say that the commission may further adopt presto clarify this. i think we should get it right and not rely on having to go back later and define by regwhere we already have a definition that is intended to be comprehensive. >> because we so seldom try to do things right the first time? >> we should try. i'm being supportive. i will shut up for a while. >> i think commissioner studley is correct that the issue of the words

: robert griffin, iii was back in action today following clearance last night to play on his injured right knee for the first time in two weeks. granted it was a limited version of the rg3 this team is used to. mont he got the job done in a different -- nonetheless he got the job done in a different way. >> i felt like myself out there. >> reporter: wearing a brace on his sprained right nye rg3 was limited in run -- knee rg3 was limited in running accounting for two carries and 4 yards, but he made up for his lack of mobility with his arm throwing two touchdown passes and amassing 198 yards through the air. >> i thought he did an ex had not job coming back and not -- did an excellent job come back and not having the reps last week and being able to do what he did today. >> it's not abbreviated with a running quarterback before that or whatever else anyone else wants to say. they call me quarterback because i lead the team. i'm supposed to go out there and throw the ball, assist the ball and hand the ball over to alfred. >> reporter: alfred morris rushed for 91 yards scoring his 10th touc
like outside days and offside gaps. that was a key reversal. we also saw somewhat similar action around the thanksgiving. in 2011. i believe that this rally is genuine. we will need to hold on a monthly closing basis the 1400 plus. where would the charts the? if we take a look, at that horizontal line, you will notice that the outline correspond to keys peak. by taking an aerial view of the markets, sometimes they could offer potential clues. as long as we remain above this 1400 area on a monthly closing basis, we are building a potentially attractive base. ashley: the s&p up 114% since the bottom of march 2009. now, is that a little longing the tooth, as far as a rally? >> i still do not see any cavities. i might add, initial support for the s&p above 1400 on a weekly close. secondary supporters a little closer to the 1360-70 area. if we take if things like momentum indices, if we take a look at other technical indicators, i believe overall, as i said this weekend in my piece, the bullish resume is better than the bearish resume. there is always something, ashley. ashley: we have volat
, especially with democrats action but look, that's not only thing people are talking about, there are concerns monday senators about the stances on israel, for example. it's quite interesting, because usually snort, they obvious support their colleagues overwhelmingly like i expect we'll see with senator john kerry when he eventually gets a confirmation vote. that is not the case is chuck hagel. there's no benefit of giving him the doubt. in this says lindsey graham has front and center opposing rice, now hesitating on chuck hagel as well. >>> since you brought up kerry here, he has been nominated to succeed hillary clinton. so if he is confirmed, fawn action what will happen to his senate seat? >> i think that's what the republicans are eyeing that seat with a bit of hope. it's not entirely clear that scott brown will be returning, but certainly it's an option that perhaps for the republicans to have an additional seat in the senate, but there's no guarantee of that? >> i want to pay a bit of sound here from ben affleck. >> one never knows. i'm not one to get into conjecture. i do have a grea

actions on the ground. but the opposition believes the government has been weakened and is looking for a deal to stay in power. un and arab league special envoy lakhdar brahimi is in damascus to find a settlement to this work, but it is not clear whether he has a proposal. diplomatic sources have told al jazeera is trying to strike a deal to ensure an orderly transfer of power. but sources are not expecting a breakthrough, even though according to them the position of the american and russian governments are closer than ever. scenes like these will continue of the two sides are not willing to compromise. al jazeera. >> more than half a million syrians are registering or pending registration as refugees in neighboring countries. the latest figures from the u.n. refugee agency show that more 164.5 -- 164,000 are awaiting registration in lebanon. more than 142,000 syrians are registered in turkey. many are camped near the border with turkey. >> what can we do? we are called. everybody is one gray. what can we do? the water flows through my sense. -- everybody is hungry. the refugee ce

. >> thanks. next item on the agenda is discussion and possible action on the amendments to the ordinance. >> nobody is a stranger to the subject matter in front of us. the commission made some progress and combing through input from the sunshine ordinance task force and the staff's updated and redirected recommendations and then once again, after the last time the commission discussed this, staff has put together sort of a chronology of what has happened so far, and tried to distill all of the direction from the commission into a set of decision points to help us to finish this. and then move to getting the dregs into effect. there are eight decision points in front of you to go through the last few more housekeeping than anything else. but we're ready to answer any questions the commission has as they go through these. >> my thought was to begin by taking one decision point at a time. there may be somewhere we can consolidate, like mr. st. croix was saying towards the end and we will do so, if possible. i second mr. st. croix's statements about this process. it has been a long process
's available to us today to signal a demand to our congress that we really need a plan and a plan and an action to follow that, to ban these assault weapons and to make sure that we do everything we can to create a higher level of safety throughout the country. assault weapons and the types of things that we've seen in the hands of people who are doing evil or can do evil really have no place, in the home or in the schools or in our streets. and, so, with that we ask ourselves what we can do locally. i also want to recognize the three state senators, senator de leon, state senator leland yee and state senator ted gains, all three of which are sponsoring some five different pieces of state legislation aimed at banning assault weapons and munitions, getting higher levels of background checks and registries, and also i think senator gains is attempting to also make sure that those that have backgrounds of mental health challenges are lifetime bans of possessing these weapons. again, in an attempt to do what we can. in san francisco, we tried to ban assault weapons some years ago. we were unsuccess
possible action on draft regs governing the handling of complaints related to alleged violations and referrals from the task force. i'm not sure i'm not sure within that scope you could actually act to amend the regs for investigation and enforcement proceedings. it pay be a close call, but it may be dependent on whether you take final action tonight or not. i don't have any particular quarrel with the proposed edits to the general regs. if i could, for a moment, on your last comment on subsection i in section 4 chapter 4. in the event that there is a complaint that alleges both a sunshine violation and other improper activities of other sorts, i would hope that the staff-initiated complaint pursuant to the last section doesn't reveal any more or less than necessary for the processing of the sunshine-related complaint, because the regular complaint wouldn't be disclosed under current provisions in the event it's dismissed or doesn't get tie problem cause report, et cetera. i'm not sure that you want to reveal any more than you would otherwise, just because someone added a sunshin

important role, but nothing happened without the actions of this man, and those other 52 africans onboard that vessel. theirs was the actions that set everything else in motion. so, i wanted to return to that. and i also wanted to question what had seemed to me to become one of the main arguments about the amistad case, and that was that it was a great success story about the american legal system. the fact that the supreme court could rule in their favor proved that the american legal system was the hero of the case, alongside john quincy adams. to which i ask, do you mean the same legal system that was holding two and a half million people in bondage at that moment? that's the hero of the story? i don't think so. i think we have to go back and look at the rebellion itself, and especially to look at those africans who met the rebellion. so what we have in both history and film, is actually very good history from above. history that stresses the likes of john quincy adams. what i wanted to do was to write a different kind of history, what anna called history from below. whose history is i

not doing anything, after aurora and gabby giffords and virginia tech, we will get some action this time. >> in 2010, the brady center to prevent gun violence gave president obama a "f" rating. do you think that now is the time for the president to be able to -- to control this issue in a more positive direction, when i talk about control this issue, i mean the sentiment and the emotion that goes in to all americans responding to what we saw in newtown. >> you know, i don't think he has a choice with 80 million american moms coming at him. we have done nothing before and hasn't worked. i think the nra and frankly many congressmen laid out what they see for us in the country where the bad and good guys are armed and duke it out over our kids' heads. we won't allow that to happen. we won't rest until we see that change. >> shannon watts, nice to see you. thank you. >> thank you. >>> are retail sales diving off the fiscal cliff? we'll talk about how the tax cut debate is impacting the recent christmas shopping economy. and cut! very good. people are always asking me how we make these geico
a fine point on this. bob dean from the nrcd action fund is willing to go along with helping the chinese develop their natural gas reserves so that they don't become too dependent on coal. i think that's news. >> what we're trying to do is to encourage the chinese to promote all kinds of clean technology. we've had an office in beijing since 1995 and 30, 35 people there, we have good contacts in the government. good contacts in the business community and we're making a difference there, but what it's about, is helping the chinese to improve their efficiency. david, their industrial efficiency is improved by two-thirds since 1980, but they're still 15 to 20% behind where they need to be. they are he going to get there in the next-- >> let's be realistic, you're comparing natural gas and wind mills, it's going to be a long time before wind mills can get to where natural gas is. if we have to deal with a solution right now for the chinese to prevent them from spewing out all of that coal. 70% of their energy needs is coal-produced. if we want to switch to something cle something cleaner. na

in conservative politics. their actions alone marked a alone marked their different backgrounds and experiences. it is easy to forget that buckley was once a fledgling writer and publisher trying to stimulate himself and the world of politics and letters. the son of a oil baron, and thurmond was a priceless compact, father and son both. later, after a seachange inaugurated on the civil rights movement, thurmond would not be the only conservative leader with a segregationist record in need of scrubbing. in the 20 century american right was a smaller, more interconnected world than we often remember. now, i think strom thurmond life is interesting for the life that it shed on southern and -- it properly the light it sheds on southern a national politics in the second half of the 20th century. but strom thurmond's life is also interesting simply as a life. i mean, the man lived to be 100. he was full of twists and turns. it was full of psychological complexity, and unintended consequences, and it was full of secrets, too, right? we know the secret of his having fathered an african-american daughte
